"Most anorexics, initially, resist recovery because it means that they must GAIN weight (among other reasons).
On the other hand, many bulimics and binge eaters/ compulsive over-eaters desire recovery because in a lot of cases this will involve LOSING weight."
I overheard someone saying this. I think it's interesting that whether you want to recover or not, it's hard as hell either way. Also, I acknowledge that there is a myriad of other reasons why someone would/would not want to recover.
